Woman demands hubby’s full salary

A HARARE woman has dragged her ex-husband to court claiming his full salary as maintenance for their three children.

Vongai Musada appeared at the Harare Civil Court on Monday where she claimed $30 000 from Wilson Sam.

She told the court Sam was an irresponsible man and a drunkard.

“He should give me all his money because he is an irresponsible man who, if left alone, will spend all his earnings on alcohol.

“If he feels the decision is harsh on him, he should look for menial jobs to earn extra money,” she said.

She added:

“It is much better for me to get his whole salary than to watch him getting drunk everyday leaving me behind suffering with children alone.”

However, Sam claims the amount Musada was claiming was beyond his means. He offered to pay $10 000.

“l have never neglected my responsibility but my only worry is that the amount she is claiming is too much for me.

“I will be left with nothing every month since all my salary will be going towards the maintenance of the minor children,” said Sam.

Magistrate Judith Taruvinga ordered Sam to pay $12 000, with effect from the end of this month.
